Fortuny

Tedious lines repeat

The tucks, folds, pleats

To create a texture, a shape

An accordian to cling and drape

Flats

SwatchesFor my Fortuny inspired project, I chose to make a pleated maxi dress.  I achieved the pleated look, by doing running stitches throughout my garment, pulling it tight and then pressing it.
